With its picture-perfect harbors, and long sandy beaches, Gloucester is one of Massachusetts’ many premiere summer destinations. From the Man at The Wheel to The Perfect Storm, Gloucester is known for its rich maritime history, scenic backdrops, a vibrant local arts scene, and as we’ll make note of today, good tunes and good eats!
Food: Taste Gloucester
The history and culture of a city is often reflected in the aromas and flavors of the foods prepared in its homes and restaurants. Gloucester is no exception. The culinary delights of Gloucester can be experienced through a food tour, aptly named, “Taste Gloucester.” The 2.5 mile walking tour, which begins at 11:00 a.m. and again at 2:00 p.m. almost daily, is designed to unlock the history and culture of America’s oldest working seaport through an appreciation of its exceptional cuisine.
NEW BUSINESS: Get a Taste of Gloucester – on foot
While whale watches, duck boats and deep sea fishing ships are common fare in Gloucester – offering a taste of what the waters of Cape Ann have to offer – the forthcoming Taste Gloucester tour offers a land-based alternative for tourists new to the city.

Patrick Halloran, a Gloucester native who now serves as a fireman in Somerville, served as our tour guide. He graduated GHS in 2002 and his love for Gloucester was apparent as he proudly told us various tales from Gloucester’s history. Patrick himself was a highlight of the tour, with his friendly personality, sense of humor and depth of knowledge.
North Shore Nosh
The Taste Gloucester Tour serves up local flavors
What you do know about Gloucester: she’s also given us the Gorton’s Fisherman.
The frozen fish company was founded in the historic North Shore seaport town in 1849. For those of you keeping score at home, that’s over half-a-century before the Red Sox first played ball.
Don’t expect to find any frozen food on the Taste Gloucester Tour, a mouth-watering walk through the hamlet by the sea that highlights cuisine from six local vendors.
